REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

To the Citizens of Cohasset : 

Demands on the Office of Selectmen continue to increase with each passing 
year. The complexity of today's society requires that services be provided which 
were heretofore non-existent. 

The Board convened in more than fifty regular and special meetings and 
spent numerous hours in daily operation of the department. They also attended 
many hearings and meetings of other Town Boards and Committees, as well as, 
regional, county and state meetings directly affecting the affairs of the Town. 

A committee, appointed by the Selectmen, to assist in evaluating and recom- 
mending solutions to Town office space needs is progressing on schedule with 
recommendations to be made at our next Annual Town Meeting. 

The very important task of up-dating and codifying our by-laws is being 
performed under a committee of the Selectmen who will submit several proposed 
changes at next annual meeting. At least one, and usually more, members of the 
Board, serving ex-officio, attend their weekly meetings. 

Matters required to be carried out by town meeting vote have either been 
completed or will be before the fiscal period ends. An exception is Article 31 
authorizing repairs to the Government Island pier. No bids were received 
presumably because insufficient funds are available to complete the project 
according to specifications. The latter will be reviewed and new estimates will be 
presented to the next annual town meeting. 

Except for increased costs, the fuel oil and gasoline crisis has leveled off. 
However, as a result, gasoline suppliers will no longer maintain storage facilities 
on Town property. Therefore, it will be necessary to provide increased storage 
capacity at the high school with coded dispensing pumps for accounting purposes. 

This year the Selectmen directly assumed responsibility for collective bargain- 
ing and engaged an outside paid negotiator. Negotiations are progressing satis- 
factorily with the Police and Fire Associations with agreement expected soon. A 
first contract is being negotiated with the recently certified American Federation 
of State, County and Municipal Employees who represent the Highway, Tree & 
Park, Wire, Water and Sewer Departments. Being a first contract, negotiations 
are expected to take somewhat longer than continuing contracts. 

Application has been made to procure a new Class I Ambulance at reduced 
cost through a special volume purchased by the State. The decision was made 
to transfer responsibility for its operation to the fire department with both 
police and fire personnel manning the vehicle as emergency medical technicians. 
Both departments are training additional men to assure the Town of a first-class 
municipal ambulance service. 

The Town continued to benefit from Federal manpower programs through 

19 



the Youth Corps and C.E.T.A. work assignments. These programs have provided 
valuable experience for participants while performing necessary and useful tasks 
for the Town. 

Federal revenue sharing funds in the amount of $84,507. have been made 
available to the Town in 1975. As in the past, these monies have been applied 
in a manner which effectively reduces the tax rate rather than expending them 
on new programs. 

The Board of Selectmen extends its sincere appreciation to all Townspeople, 
employees, boards and committees for their cooperation and assistance during 
the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur L. Clark, Chairman 
Mary Jeanette Murray 
Henry W. Ainslie, Jr. 

COHASSET HOUSING AUTHORITY 

On January 24, 1975 the sixty-four apartment Community for the 
Elderly and Handicapped was turned over to the Cohasset Housing Authority 
for occupancy, by the Contractor. 

The first tenants moved in on January 27, 1975 and the Community was 
fully occupied on March 1, 1975. 

Various unfinished phases of the work were completed during the year, and 
it is anticipated that all contractual requirements will be completed in the 
spring of 1976. 

Our thanks to Mr. James De Giacomo who completed five years of service 
on the Board in 1975; and we welcome the newly elected Board Member, 
Mrs. Patricia Barrow. 

Mr. Alfred Odermatt was reappointed as Executive Director, and Mr. Mike 
Emanuello will continue to serve as Maintenance Man. 

We are very pleased with the overall success of the Community, and the fine 
spirit and cooperation of the tenants. 

Respectfully submitted,

1975 REPORT OF THE BY-LAWS STUDY COMMITTEE 



The Committee was appointed in July, 1974, by the Board of Selectmen. It 
holds open meetings, usually on Monday evenings in the Town Hall. At these 
meetings, the Committee reviews the existing By-Laws of the Town, meets with 
Officers and Department Chairmen of the Town, examines By-Laws of compara- 
ble towns in the Commonwealth, and considers possible formats for a compila- 
tion of the current rules and regulations. 

At the Annual Town Meeting on May 3, 1975, the Committee requested 
changes in Articles VI and VII of the By-Laws as they existed at that time. The 
citizens of the Town voted to accept the new articles as proposed. 

At the Annual Town Meeting in May 1976, additional changes will be offered 
for consideration and action. 

The By-Law Study Committee continues with the compiling and drafting of 
appropriate By-Laws, to be presented for deliberation and decision at future 
town meetings.

ARTICLE 22 - Planning Board 

There shall be a Planning Board to consist of five members to be elected by 
ballot or appointed by the selectmen for terms of such length and so arranged 
that the term of at least one member will expire each year, and their successors 
shall be appointed or elected for terms of five years each. 

It shall be the duty of planning board members to familiarize themselves with 
all parts of the Town, as well as possible, and to study how the land within the 
Town's borders can be used most advantageously for the benefit of the Town's 
people; also to prepare a "Land Use Plan of Cohasset" to show how the Town is 
now divided into a number of districts according to how the land is being used, 
such as residential, business, parks, etc. From time to time the Planning Board 
shall make recommendations to the selectmen for any change in land uses that 
in the judgement of the board would be beneficial to the Town. 

The above specific duties shall supplement the law which has said the 
planning board shall from time to time make careful studies and, when necessary 
prepare plans of the resources, possibilities and need of the Town, and upon the 
completion of any such study shall submit to the selectmen a report thereon, 
with its recommendations. It shall report to the annual town meeting, annually, 
giving information regarding the condition of the Town and any plans or proposals 
for its development, and estimates of the cost thereof, and shall at the same time 
furnish a copy of its report to the Division of Planning of the Massachusetts De- 



63 



partment of Commerce. (According to Section 8 1C of Chapter 41. G.L., the 
subdivision control law.) 

So long as any land remains to be subdivided in the coastal zone to be described 
in the amended zoning by-law the planning board shall continue, as in the past, to 
control the subdivision of land under Chapter 41 . G.L. 

This by-law shall take effect after being voted by the Town and approved by 
attorney general. All members of the planning board shall be appointed for not 
more than two consecutive five year terms, and the maximum length of service 
shall be ten years. Besides having the power to appoint planning board members 
the selectmen shall have the power to remove them.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF 

THE COHASSET FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY 

1975 

Your library continues to vibrate with activity while hurting for space. 

LIBRARY USE SHOWS GOOD RETURN ON INVESTMENT. Widespread 
Cohasset use of the library continued during 1975, with total circulation up 
almost 4 percent. Total circulation was more than twelve times Cohasset 's 
population. Over seventy percent of Cohasset families have one or more library 
cards and about 250 persons visited the library each day. 

Other library activity, detailed below, continued at a high level, serving 
varied interests and age groups in the town. 

The library budget for 1975 represented 1 .6 percent of Cohasset's total 
budget. For an annual cost of about one book per capita, the town has access 
to an excellent collection of over 45,000 books, as well as magazines, records, 
and other material. 

Library use, therefore, represents an excellent return on Cohasset's invest- 
ment in it. 

LIBRARY POTENTIAL CRAMPED BY SPACE. Despite the excellence of 
Cohasset's library collection and staff, today the town is denied the important 
asset of an attractive and efficient library. Inevitable growth has not been 
matched by improvements in space over the years. It would be unsound for 
the town to permit this situation to continue when good remedy is at hand. 

The architectural study of the library's space problems, authorized by the 
1974 town meeting, produced a practical plan to renovate unused space in the 
library's lower level. Combined with interior remodeling the plan would 
create an efficient, economical, and attractive town library which would well 
provide for the foreseeable future . 

At the 1975 town meeting, this renovation plan, unanimously endorsed by 
the library trustees, the directors of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library, the 
Friends of the Cohasset Library, and recommended by the Advisory Committee 
and the Capital Budget Committee obtained a majority vote, but not the neces- 
sary two-thirds. 

The trustees have, of course, reflected on and discussed that vote of the 
town meeting, as well as the economic and social conditions of this year, and 
the emergence of other town capital projects. We still are convinced that the 
town needs to improve its public library facility, that our renovation proposal 
is the best way to do it, and that the sooner we do, the better for service and 
the less costly it will be. This is the first time in the town's history public 
funds have been requested to provide space for your library. The cost of the 
renovation is equal to only two years of library operating budget. We believe 



89 



improved efficiency in operation, and improved accessibility and usefulness to 
the public will more than repay such an investment. 

OWNERSHIP OF THE LIBRARY BY THE TOWN. The long history of 
private-public, dual ownership of the library was concluded in 1975 by 
Cohasset's acceptance of the generous gift of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library 
to the town at the 1975 town meeting, provided the courts would allow the 
gift by the charitable corporation. Court authority was granted on September 2, 
1975. Cohasset is deeply indebted to the Directors of the Paul Pratt Memorial 
Library for this progressive decision, especially to Roger B. Coulter who pre- 
pared the legal documents to petition the court and to transfer the property to 
to town. 

Special appreciation goes again this year to Cohasset's outstanding library 
staff, directed by Richard Hayes, and to the invaluable support of the library 
given by the Friends of the Cohasset Library under Jacqueline Dormitzer's 
capable leadership. 

Respectfully submitted, 







Sheila S. Evans, Chairman 
for the Library Trustees

NEW REGISTRATIONS DURING 1975. Adult: 424 Children: 182 Total:606

PERSONNEL (as of January 1976): Fulltime: Richard E. Hayes, Chief 
Librarian; Evelyn B. Wood, Assistant Librarian; Susan M. Watrous, Children's 
Librarian. Parttime: Verna Blossom, Nancy Knight, Susan M. Pope, 
Margaret D. Rossi, Martha Smith. Student help: Martha Fink, Alison Gilmore , 
Lisa Kjer, Deborah A. Seavey. Custodian: Robert Pattison. 

INVENTORY: The total holdings listed above are adjusted to reflect an in- 
ventory made on February 28, 1975, during which every volume on shelf and 
in circulation was counted. 

SUMMER READING INCENTIVE PROGRAM: In cooperation with the 
school department, and in an effort to encourage skill and pleasure in reading, 
the library sponsors a reading program each summer. Participants receive 
certificates of recognition and free books. This summer, 62 children com- 
pleted the program, reading a total of 1 ,690 books. We welcome suggestions 
and assistance in getting more children to participate in this worthwhile activity 
next summer. Perhaps neighborhood carpools could be organized to help more 
children get to the library regularly. 

FILM: The library borrowed 32 films (16mm) from the Regional Library Sys- 
tem during the year for library programs and for other organizations in town. 
Any group which would like to show films is invited to inquire at the library. 

RESERVE AND REQUEST SERVICE: The library filled about 2,300 reserve 
requests for books, records, magazine articles, or information. This represents 
less than 3 percent of total circulation, but it is an important service for these 
reasons: 1) it encourages users to ask for what they need if it is not listed in 
the catalog or is not on the shelf; 2) it assists the library staff in discovering 
material that needs replacement or added copies; 3) it assures users that the 
library will follow up and fill the request if possible. Only 38 requests were not 
acted on due to inability to verify a title, or decision not to purchase. In general, 
requests represent materials that many people will be interested in, material 
which the library should own. 

INTERLIBRARY LOAN: Materials or information which we cannot buy, or 
which are beyond this library's area of responsibility, may be available through 
interlibrary loan from other libraries. In 1975 we sent 339 interlibrary loan re- 
quests to the Regional Library System; 276 were filled by the following librar- 
ies: Quincy, Boston, Scituate, Andover, Lowell, Wellesley, Falmouth, North- 
ampton, Brockton, Taunton, New Bedford, Hingham, Braintree, and the Count- 
way Library of Medicine. These materials (and film) are delivered daily by the 
Regional Library System, which is funded by the state. The Cohasset Library 
supplies books to other libraries through interlibrary loan. 

RECIPROCAL BORROWING: In addition to interlibrary loan, many residents 
make extensive direct use of other public libraries free of charge. This service 
is not reimbursed by Regional or state funding. Hingham reports 1 5,000 loans 
a year to Cohasset residents; Boston Public Library reports about 1 ,200 loans a 
year to Cohasset residents. Direct loans to Cohasset residents by these two 



91 



libraries alone amount to about 18% of Cohasset 's total circulation. Cohasset 
makes about 4,000 loans a year to non-residents. 

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY: Volunteer aides in the library gave over 2,000 
hours of assistance at routine library work this year. This is equal to 1 .2 full- 
time employees. In addition, various committees of the Friends planned and 
carried out special programs for adults and children, several of which drew at- 
tendance between 100 and 300. Friends also arrange exhibits, do publicity 
work, sponsor an annual book sale, and give the library money for books and 
furnishings. Their support of the library is of enormous benefit to the com- 
munity and is very much appreciated by the trustees and staff. 

GIFTS: Many gifts of money or materials selected by the library were received 
this year, especially helpful at a time when our budget declined in purchasing 
power due to inflation in book prices. Many other gifts of used books, maga- 
zines, and records have been donated either for library use, Friends of the 
Library book sale, or to give away. We cannot acknowledge all gifts of used 
books, but believe it is a valuable service to others and well in line with the 
philosophy of a public library — to economize and conserve resources through 
shared use.

REPORT OF THE COUNCIL ON AGING 

Open meetings of the Cohasset Council on Aging are held every second 
Tuesday of the month at 10:00 AM, at the First Parish House, North Main St. 
The nine member board voluntarily meets to discuss the implementations of 
plans concerning the welfare and activities of this very important segment of 
the town's population — the elderly. 

The following programs and activities now available to the elderly are made 
possible through the efforts of the Social Service League, the Cohasset Housing 
Authority, the Council and over 200 dedicated, willing volunteers. 

HEALTH CARE: A "KeepWell" Clinic is held, under the auspices of the 
Social Service League, by the Town Nurse every third Thursday of the month 
at the First Parish House, in conjunction with the monthly meeting of the 60- 
Plus Club. A similar clinic is held every third Wednesday at the housing for the 
elderly, 60 Elm Street. Additionally, flu shots are given every year at the offices 
of the Social Service League. All qualified citizens are welcome. 

HOUSING: Under the Cohasset Housing Authority, 65 units are now fully 
occupied and are fully operative at 60 Elm Street, 383-1948. 

INFORMATION: As a means of communicating upcoming social, educa- 
tional or recreational activities, the SENIOR VISTA, a monthly newsletter, is 
mailed to over 250 homes. Anyone wishing to receive this important source of 
information should call 383-1 105 weekday mornings. 

NUTRITION: Volunteers from the Social Service League conduct an ever 
increasingly popular program of Meals-On-Wheels. Six days a week hot meals 
are delivered to the homes of the elderly who need assistance in the preparation 
of food. Special diets are also available when required. There is a nominal 
charge of $1 .10 per meal, but additional financial aid can be arranged when 
needed. Over 2800 meals were served last year. Social luncheons are also served 
each Tuesday at 12:30 at the First Parish House. These are sponsored by the 
Council on Aging, prepared by the High School, and over 30 volunteers from 
St. Anthony's, St. Stephens', First Parish and Second Parish Congregational 
Churches serve the meals. There is a charge of $.75 per meal. The program is 
active whenever schools are in session. Approximately 500 meals were served 
last year. Those interested should contact 383-1 105 by Monday noon. 

RECREATION: The Council on Aging sponsors one recreational bus trip a 
year. Information regarding this trip is made available through the SENIOR 
VISTA. Further, the Council works very closely with the 60-Plus Club who meet 
every third Thursday at the First Parish House. The 60-Rus Club is also active 
in arranging bus trips, outings, theater parties, gala luncheons and fairs — with 
news of these appearing in the VISTA. The Senior Citizen Center is located at 
the First Parish House, and it is hoped that in the near future there will be a 
Director on duty three days a week to coordinate and conduct a planned pro- 
gram of additional recreational opportunities for our Elderly. 

96 



TRANSPORTATION: The Senior Shuttle Bus continues to increase in 
popularity and usage. Last year over 60 passengers per week were driven by over 
60 competent volunteer drivers. The service was extended to include Sundays 
for Church Services, and the bus was made available for selected evening func- 
tions in the town. Those interested should call 383-0821 before 10:00 AM, for 
morning rides and before 12:30 for afternoons; for church bus call 383-1814. 
This service is probably the most used by the elderly for it makes it possible 
for them to enjoy a wide variety of business and social activities.

REPORT OF THE TOWN OFFICES COMMITTEE - 1975 

The Committee chose from a select group of architect/engineers, the firm of 
Amsler Hagenah McLean, Architects Inc. to work with the Committee. Our 
purpose is to satisfy projected needs for housing effective and efficient Town 
Government in the most economical fashion. 

A variety of possible solutions has been considered with emphasis on the 
most likely situations. Sketches of prospective plans have been prepared and 
all concepts have been presented at the monthly meetings. Public participation 
has been solicited in an endeavor to clarify approaches and to promote under- 
standing of the on-going program. 

The plan is to obtain voter approval of a specific program in May, 1976. 
Appropriation of funds will permit the development of working drawings and 
specifications during 1976. This in turn, will permit the appropriation of funds 
in 1977 for proceeding with the approved construction. 

The Committee appreciates the help received from all participants and 
trusts that full exposure has permitted clarification of most issues.

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

The Personnel Committee has had a steady course during the past year, 
engaged in the responsibilities delegated to it through the Personnel By-Laws 
and at the same time doing a bit of house cleaning — instituting a central filing 
system in the Town Accountant's Office of all Town employees sick leave and 
vacation data which is submitted each month by department heads — with the 
exception of the Police and Fire Departments and the school system. 

By mandate of the Personnel By-Laws the committee has reviewed all job 
descriptions and will be finished by April. 

Two years ago the committee prepared a comprehensive report summarizing 
Town employees — names, fringe benefits, classification and salaries; "Profile 1" 
for 1974-75, "Profile 2" for 1975-76. "Profile 3" will be prepared immediately 
after the May Town Meeting and will be ready for use July 1 , 1976-77. 

The Committee has kept the "Personnel By-Laws" up to date and have 
distributed copies to all department heads. In the past year Mr. David Chittim 
and Mr. Kenneth Cook left the committee after serving notable years of service 
and we are indebted to them for the countless hours of time and energy they 
gave to the Town. They were replaced by Mr. Richard Yake and Mr. Norman 
Megathlin.

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 

The Planning Board has had a very full and productive year. Its activities have 
been in three areas: (1) Administrative handling of its own affairs; (2) rewriting 
the Signage and Zoning By-Law so they are more readable and usable; (3) its 
Coastal Zone Sub -Committee work. 

The administrative area has been largely handled by its Executive Assistant, 
Ms. Marie McCarthy. Under her capable guidance, records have been brought up 
to date. This was a serious matter, since critical materials for the Town's own 
stance have not been filed and properly cared for. A control log has been set up 
so the Board for the first time will know that critical documents have been put 
on record at the Registry of Deeds and will otherwise know their status. The 
caliber of the minutes and correspondence has been greatly improved. Further, 
the Planning Board finally has a location wher it can handle its matters in a 
businesslike manner. It has relocated to the Town building at 43 Elm Street. Its 
files, maps, plans and correspondence are located there on the second floor, with 
the exception of the files needed by Town Hall personnel from time to time. The 
Board is very grateful to Ms. McCarthy for her executive abilities pursuing these 
matters and seeing them through in a most capable manner. 

The Planning Board has had near perfect attendance of its five members this 
year. All have shown a deep interest in the Board's work and have regularly done 
considerable work and research outside of the weekly Board meetings. The Board 
has set up a rotating system of attendance whereby a member of the Planning 
Board attends each Board of Appeals hearings. 

The Planning Board has been very active in the rewriting of the signage by-law. 
This work has been under the guidance of Ms. Martha Gjesteby. It is felt this 
new signage by-law, which will be proposed at the Town Meeting, will be of 
great benefit to the Town. 

Nathan Bates has been spearheading the rewriting of the Zoning By-Law, and 
under his guidance we feel the product we will be presenting will be most bene- 
ficial. This new By-Law does not change the zoning of the Town, it just cleans 
up the ambiguities that are present in the old Zoning By-Law and otherwise 
makes it easier to administer by Town officials, such as the building inspector, 
the Board of Appeals, and the Planning Board. 

Ms. Roberta Leary has been guiding the Coastal Zone Sub -Committee, which 
has been studying the "planning" needs of the Town east of Route 3A. This has 
been a most comprehensive work. She has been assisted by Committee and Board 
Vice Chairman, Mark Goodrich and by the consultant to the Planning Board, 
Burk Ketcham of Anderson Nichols. The work of the Committee has been most 
effective in ascertaining the needs and problems of the Coastal Zone. Special 
attention has been given to the Village Center, the Harbor, the effect of the 
waste water treatment plant , and to the various recreational resources which are 
in the zone. The Committee's specific recommendations will be made to the 



99 



Town Meeting so that certain work can be continued and with the hope that 
certain specific action can take place and resolutions can be passed by the 
Town Meeting to provide the Planning Board with guidance in the future.

REPORT OF WIRE DEPARTMENT 

To The Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

I herewith submit the annual report of the Wire Department for the year 1975. 

Firealarm and Traffic Signals: 

With the installation of the new fire alarm panel, we were able to split the 
south end circuit, which in the past has given much trouble. New 
wires were installed along Summer, South Main, and Beechwood Streets. New 
boxes were installed around town, all fire boxes were painted, outer red cases 
along the sea front were replaced due to salt water damage. Testing of fire boxes 
is done on a weekly basis. All traffic lights were put in good working order and 
painted. 

Wire Inspections: 

All work done by electrical contractors was inspected by the department and 
fees turned into the town treasurer. 

Town Buildings: 

Electrical work and repairs in all town owned buildings was done by the 
department, with a great savings to the town. 

I wish to express my thanks to the Board of Selectmen, to all town depart- 
ments, and to the men who worked with me. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stephen F. Wigmore 
Superintendent of Wire

On November 6, 1975, Lieutenant Thomas B. Kane, after a career of thirty- 
seven years as a Law Enforcement Officer retired from the Cohasset Police 
Department. 

Tom entered the Police Service for the Town of Cohasset on April 21 , 1938 
and rose through the ranks to the grade of Lieutenant. He was also Acting Chief 
of Police several times during this period. 

Tom and I worked on the night patrol for many years and when matters be- 
came difficult I always knew that he would be at my shoulder to back me up. 
Throughout the many years he gave of himself unhesitantly, never did I hear 
say, "That's not my job", he was always there when needed. 

102 



Tom always gave more than 1 00 percent of himself in helping our citizens of 
all ages, and many of our outstanding citizens of today have him to thank for 
putting them on the correct pathway through life during their formative years. 

Along with the members of the Cohasset Police Department and the citizens 
of the Town of Cohasset, I take this opportunity to wish Thomas B. Kane and 
his lovely wife Edna, many years of happiness to enjoy his retirement that he so 
richly deserves.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 
For the year 1975 

Another twelve months has slipped away bringing our water improvement 
project closer to reality. The Board would like to take this opportunity to 
thank the voters for the continued interest in the project by voting at the 
January 1976 Special Town Meeting additional funds to go forward and rate 
increase to meet the financial obligations. The invitations for bidding are ex- 
pected to go out about March 1 , 1976 and construction should start in May. 
We would also like to thank the Cohasset Conservation Trust and especially 
Mr. Charles Fink for their contribution of the scale model of the Treatment 
Plant Facility, and to other interested citizens for their constructive input. 

Nineteen seventy-five again required a total watering ban very early in the 
Season. Despite the curtailment our records show a ten million (10,000,000) 
gallon increase in production over the previous year. Installation of new and 
replacement of old service connections has decreased somewhat, indicating a 
slowdown in construction. There were no new mains added to the system 
this year. 

Maintenance and repair of the department buildings, property and equipment 
has continued throughout the year. 

A new section of main was installed on Cunningham Bridge by department 
personnel to eliminate two dead ends and improve the flow in the area. 

The adoption of the new flood plan and water shed protection zoning 
contributed to a continued effort to protect our water supply. Your commis- 
sioners have also initiated an effort to curtail the use of salts and chlorides on 
the highways of the type that could contribute to the contamination of the 
water supply . 

The Board of Water Commissioners again would like to take this opportunity 
to thank all the Town Officials, Department Heads, Committees and Boards 
for their cooperation and support, and especially those who have worked so 
closely with us on the many details of the improvement project and to the 
Superintendent and Department personnel for their continued loyal support. 

Respectfully submitted,

The above list of the various pieces of automotive equipment of the depart- 
ment giving their function, assignment and age is important because it points 
up the fact that much of the apparatus has reached or exceeds the normal 
average service life. Leading fire protection authorities place an average service 
life for a pumping engine at 1 5 - 20 years; and 20 - 25 years for a ladder truck, 
plus a reserve service of 5 years. 

During the year routine maintenance of all vehicles was carried out by the 
department mechanic-firefighter. Replacement of parts, tires, batteries, etc. 
were made as required. Braking systems were repaired on Engines 1 , 2 and 3, 
new linings, wheel cylinders, drums turned, and adjustments made. Clutches 
were rebuilt and replaced on Engines 1 and 2. Lubrication and oil changes, 
plugs, points and tune-ups were made on all units. 

It should be noted at this time that as the apparatus gets older the availability 
of parts becomes more of a problem and tne resulting time out of service in- 
creases. As an example, Engine 1 was out of service for 6 weeks because of the 
lack of available carburetor parts. The original manufacturer had discontinued 
production of the needed carburetor and repair parts. After an extensive search 
they were located in Illinois. The availability of parts for repair and maintenance 
in the future is of great concern. 

A program of systematic replacement of apparatus is necessary to keep the 
ages and purchases of equipment spaced out. This way the financial impact is 
spread out and the apparatus is of varied ages. The Capital Budget Committee 
has requested and received this information from the department.

PERSONNEL 



The personnel of the department were granted a 42 hour work week, effec- 
tive July 1 , 1975. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement three 
additional firefighters were authorized to maintain manning at a minimum level. 
The unfortunate death of a firefighter and the voluntary retirement of another 
coupled with these three men created five vacancies. The inability of the State 
Division of Civil Service to establish a list of qualified candidates, due to a class 
action suit, resulted in a serious manpower shortage. However, it now appears 
that this problem will be resolved in the coming months. 

The normal complement of men should be twenty-four officers and men, 
divided into four groups of six men each. These four groups would have an 
officer and five men assigned to them, and the men would be assigned to the 
three stations. With the authorized leaves granted . . . sick leave, vacation, etc. 
these four groups operate most of the year with only five men. Hopefully this 
condition can be improved upon in the coming years, with additional personnel 
to strengthen the groups. 

The fact that the North Cohasset and Beechwood stations are operated with 

109 



one man on duty each shift results in approximately forty percent of the man- 
power being in the extremities of the town, working alone and able to provide 
only minimal service, not only to both those areas but to the entire town. 
There are two methods of correcting this problem. The first is to add sufficient 
manpower to have two men on duty, each shift, at both the Beechwood and 
North Cohasset stations. The second method would be to consolidate these 
stations thus doubling the work strength without the additional personnel. 

What effect the manning and operation of the ambulance by the fire 
department will have on the effectiveness and capability to provide basic fire 
protection remains to be seen at a later date. 

STATIONS and EQUIPMENT 

The department, after a thorough study of the advantages and disadvantages 
of larger diameter hose for water supply lines, decided to utilize three inch hose 
for this purpose. It was not necessary to purchase special fittings or equipment 
to operate it, and the area of the water way was deemed large enough to move 
an adequate volume of water from the source to the fire ground with a smaller 
loss of pressure due to friction . 

The condition of the two sub-stations has not changed since last year. They 
are still inadequate in size, condition and location to provide the type of 
quarters required for todays fire protection needs. Serious consideration must 
be given to this problem. In spite of the sentiment of the last annual Town 
Meeting, my personal judgement and the judgement of experts tells me that 
the consolidation of the two stations into one is the logical and correct solu- 
tion to the problem. Keeping in mind the action of the Town Meeting, I feel 
that some additional study is needed covering both sides of this coin. This 
study should include retaining two stations and consolidation, the costs 
involved, locations, construction costs, equipment costs and all other subjects 
related . . . percolation tests of selected sites, environmental subjects and so 
forth.

REPORT OF THE COHASSET CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The Conservation Commission held several hearings during the year on 
applications under the Wetlands Protection Act, Chapter 131 , Section 40. 
The Commission is pleased with the efforts of townspeople in complying with 
the requirements of the act and with the way in which local regulation under 
the act is proceeding generally. 

The major accomplishment for the Town in the conservation area during 
the year was the passage of an amendment to the Zoning By-Law on which 
both the Commission and the Planning Board joined efforts. This amendment, 
which was accompanied by a new map delineating the flood plains and water- 
sheds of the Town, will make it possible for the Commission, the Planning 
Board, and the Zoning Enforcement Officer to determine the status of a given 
area without the necessity of an on-site inspection. Planning and regulation 
should be enhanced by this development. 

The Commission has initiated a program of "flying" the Town from time 
to time to obtain aerial photos showing the condition of various "wet" areas 
and to identify violations under the Wetlands Protection Act. In addition, with 
the help of interested townspeople, the Commission is making an "inventory" 
of the Towns wetlands and open areas to identify parcels appropriate for 
acquisition.

REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY SURVEYOR 

Submitted herewith is the report of the Highway Surveyor for the year end- 
ing December 31, 1975. 

The months of December and January kept the men of the Highway Depart- 
ment busy. For the first time in six years we had lots of snow and ice to contend 
with. Sanding and plowing and repairing equipment was the major part of our 
job. 

For many years we have had $30,000 for snow removal. It is no longer 
enough to see the town through a bad winter. The costs of materials, repairs 
and hired equipment have seen to this. 

Spring came early. The month of February the department installed street 
drainage on Beechwood Street and North Main Street. This was done because 
the town was discharging street drainage on private property. March and April 
will see the cleaning of catch basins and street drains. The street and private 
ways will be swept and the street signs and street markers will be painted and 
repaired. The department will help to complete the Government Island parking 
area. Also, the drainage on Pond Street will be started. 

July, August and September the department will spend 50% of the Mainte- 
nance Budget. Roadmixes and liquid asphalt will be put on streets and private 
ways throughout the town. When extra money is available sections of Type I 
Bituminous asphalt are laid. Sohier Street was the last section completed. 

The town will no longer enjoy funds made available by the state and county 
This was a great help to the department. In the future monies for projects will 
have to come from Special Articles. 

In the near future monies will have to be appropriated from James Brook. 
The 4' pipe from Smith Place to the parking area is in poor condition. This 
could present a problem. 

There are many areas with street drainage and drainage easements to be 
worked on this year. The department has got good equipment and it is 
maintained well. 

There are six men who perform the duties of the Highway Department. 

I have completed twenty years in the Highway Department and have enjoyed 
the privilege of serving you. 

In closing I thank the town officials and the men of the department who 
have assisted me during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Louis C. Bailey, Jr., Highway Surveyor

1975 ANNUAL REPORT 
CAPITAL BUDGET COMMITTEE 

Richard Avery . . . Chairman 

Wayne Sawchuk . . . Secretary 

Edward Jacome . . . Representative from Advisory Board 

Martha Gjesteby . . . Representative from Planning Board 

Robert Gibbons . . . Resigned (December 1975) 

The Capital Budget Committee experienced a complete turnover of personnel 
between the Regular Town Meeting in May 1975 and the Special Town Meeting 
in January 1976. By the deadline date for this report, therefore, no real review 
had been made of capital items likely to be included in the Warrant for 1976. 
The Committee was able to review two capital items brought before the Special 
Town Meeting: the request for new gasoline storage tanks and the request from 
the Water Commissioners for a transfer from Free Cash to finance part of the 
new treatment facility. 

At the Regular Town Meeting in May 1976, the Capital Budget Committee 
will offer comments regarding capital items on the Warrant according to the 
definition of purpose and procedures stated below. 

PURPOSE 

The purpose of the Capital Budget Committee is to help the town's citizens 
determine a proper balance between the quality of life in Cohasset and the cost 
of providing such through taxation. The Committee feels it can promote this 
balance by improving the quality of capital spending information available to 
voters at town meetings. The intent is not to duplicate the efforts of other 
committees, but rather to make those efforts more effective in bringing pertinent 
information before the town. 

PROCEDURES 

To accomplish its stated purpose, the Committee will operate as follows: 

1 . Through annual questionnaires solicit and consolidate capital spending 
plans for all town departments and committees covering a period of 
five (5) years. 

2. Draw up a list of questions regarding each proposal to aid in classifying 
each proposal with a priority and to ascertain whether due diligence has 
been exercised in selecting the alternative being recommended at Town 
Meeting. 

3. Meet with proponents of capital proposals to obtain and discuss 
answers to questions. 



113 



4. Assign priorities to all projects according to such criteria as number of 
citizens affected, impact of annual costs, public safety impact, urgency, 
special financing sources, etc. 

5. Suggest ways to schedule capital items so that total capital spending is 
stabilized and top priorities are assured of funding. 

6. Report findings to the Advisory Board in time to help them arrive at 
recommendations. 

7. Present at the beginning of Town Meeting sessions an outline of the 
capital items in the Warrant, their priorities, and their impact on the 
tax rate. 

8. During Town Meeting discussions make certain that relevant issues are 
covered adequately. 

9. During the year between town meetings work with town departments 
and committees to encourage public hearings prior to Town Meeting 
and to encourage long range planning of capital requirements. 

The Committee members welcome comments from the town regarding this 
statement of purpose and procedures. 

Richard J.Avery 
Chairman 



ANNUAL REPORT OF GOVERNMENT ISLAND COMMITTEE 

The Government Island Committee in the past year has had the parking lot 
excavated, graveled and shaped in preparation for black top in mid spring. In 
addition the septiclines serving the town dwellings were replaced and an access 
road and drainage basin constructed. There is approximately 800 yards of loam 
stockpiled for removal when the area drys out. Parking of 46 automobiles was 
made available for the Sailing Club picnic and 54 automobiles for the St. 
Anthonys Church picnic.

SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 
REPORT OF OPERATIONS IN 1975 

Submitted, herewith, is a report of the South Shore Mosquito Control 
Project's operation for the period November 1, 1974 to October 31, 1975. 

The Project is a regionally organized year round operational effort to com- 
bat the nuisance and menace of mosquitoes. The City of Quincy and Towns of 
Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, Norwell, Scituate 
and Weymouth, comprise the membership communities of the Project. These 
communities cover an area of 171 square miles, having a total population in 
excess of 250,000. 

The Project as established in 1953 and acts under the provisions of M.G.L., 
Chapter 252, Chapter 112, Acts of 1931, and later acts and amendments per- 
taining to mosquito control, greenhead fly control and salt marsh drainage 
maintenance. 

The object of the Project is to reduce the mosquito population to the ab- 
solute minimum by a safe, economical and efficient operation. In general, the 
mosquitoes of this area can be classed by the type of water area in which they 
might breed: woodland pools spring breeders, saltmarsh brackish water breeders, 
flood water breeders, rock pool breeders, polluted water and water container 
breeders. Sometimes, two or more of these species may be emerging at the 
same time. This is why constant checking, larvaciding and adulticiding must be 
done at all times during the summer season. All are important and must be 
carried out. 

Aerial Larvaciding — both helicopter and fixed wing aircraft — were con- 
tracted by the Project to larvacide the larger woodland swamps and pools. This 
effort is directed early in the season for the spring hatch mosquito. 

Prior to commencing this operation, ground crews circulated the areas of 
suspected breeding, noting larvae counts and mapping. On April 28th, at dawn, 
aerial larvaciding commenced and with the exception of a few windy mornings, 
continued until May 8th. A low volume application was made using both Abate 
and Baytex insecticides. The rates were no greater than the recommended 0.05 
of a pound to the acre. 

The helicopter treated approximately 4440 acres while the fixed wing air- 
craft treated 6675 acres, a total of 1 1,1 15 larvacided acres. Many areas were 
post aerial checked and the larvae count was few or negative. The normal heavy 
rains of the spring did not occur, resulting in a very successful operation. 

Ground Larvaciding — is the insecticide treating of water, either breeding or 
apt to contain mosquito larvae and pupae. This prevents the emerging of these 
to adult mosquitoes. 



115 



Saltmarsh mosquitoes — There are three important species associated with 
the brackish water on the upper edges of the salt marsh. These areas are cata- 
logued and are routinely checked and larvacided at least four times a season, 
usually after the high course tides and heavy rains. 

Flood water mosquitoes breed in various size pools having periods of flood- 
ing and drying and larger ponds having fluctuating water levels. Such areas as 
these are also catalogued, checked and larvacided after rainy spells. 

House mosquitoes lay their eggs on still standing waters in any receptacle of 
water — from tin cans to neglected swimming pools. They prefer the proximity 
of the home, thus the name house mosquito. 

It is nearly impossible to larvacide all storm catch basins at time of breeding 
but do manage to check and treat thousands of these each season. 

Rock pool mosquitoes — the main source of this larvae may be found along 
the coastal beach area. These are checked and larvacided four or five times a 
season. 

The ground larvaciding and checking statistics for the past season: 1579 man 
hours was spent in checking breeding sites, 753 man hours was spent in actual 
larvaciding by back packs and power sprayers, 2929 gallons of insecticide was 
used in treating approximately 3000 acres, 594 man hours was spent in treating 
22,014 storm catch basins, 1373 gallons of insecticide was used. Rock pools 
were checked and treated on four separate occasions this past season treating 
approximately 2400 various size pools and using 500 gallons of insecticide. 

Adulticide is the space spraying effort to reduce the biting mosquito. This 
is very important and necessary effort of this Project's operation. It becomes 
impossible for a Project such as this with a limited capacity, to search out and 
larvacide every wet area that might be breeding at the same time. This is the 
reason adult mosquitoes do manage to emerge to seek their blood victim and 
is also the reason for most individual calls. Although the Project attempts not 
to let these calls control the operation, it has always been the policy that they 
must all be checked out for validity of conditions. In most instances, mosquitoes 
are present to be treated. 

Adulticiding statistics of the past season: 2349 man hours was spent in 
adulticiding treating approximately 14,000 acres, 13,999 gallons of insecticide 
was used, 1390 calls were received at the Project's office from individuals, 
community officials, state officials and commissioners, 1390 calls were 
answered, various actions were taken on all. 

Water management mosquito operation — By causing still water to move or 
drain, the mosquito is deprived of their necessary water habitat. The Project 
operates two marsh crawler tractors with attached backhoes. These are of special 



116 






design and are used primarily on coastal salt marshes, keeping the many miles of 
reclamation ditches and creeks flushing to allow fish in and to keep mosquitoes 
out. On occasions these tractors are put on fresh water swamps by request of 
certain town officials to alleviate mosquito breeding conditions in high com- 
plaint areas. Water management mosquito operation statistics for the past year: 
1396 man hours spent on this operation opening 89,250 feet of marsh reclama- 
tion ditches, 14,450 feet new ditches installed, 2,195 feet of brooks and streams 
cleared of blocks and obstructions, 21 ,500 feet of brush cutting and clearing 
was done for both tractor and personnel access. 

Encephalitis — a virus of which the mosquito is the main vector reached 
epidemic proportion in several parts of the country this past season. One fatal 
case was reported in the City of Quincy, abutting the Blue Hills Reservation. 
The case was first reported to the Project on August 15th as a confirmed 
eastern type virus. The Project commenced adult aerial spraying on August 18th 
to all critical areas of the Project, treating a total of 4,300 acres, until such time 
the State Department of Public Health commenced their air spray of 80,000 
acres. Previous to the one Quincy case, there was no indication of eastern virus 
activity in mosquitoes taken from traps in this Project. The eastern and western 
virus strain of virus is always present in mosquitoes and birds of this area. The 
fact that no horse cases were reported might be attributed to the inoculation 
program of the past two years. Unfortunately , no such inoculation is available 
for humans. The only precaution that can be taken at present is a good mosquito 
control program. 

Related operations — The Project has over the past several years become in- 
volved in other pest insect problems in some communities. Last season 6100 
acres were aerial treated for control of greenhead flies. One brackish water pond 
is treated several times a season for two species of midges. 

On several occasions, as a result of requests from town officials, the Project 
put both ground and air equipment in operation to hold down a biting gnat 
problem in a marsh bound community. These operations are reported here 
because, although some are separately funded, it is time consuming to the 
Project's personnel and equipment. 

Insecticides Used — The Project last season used three insecticides only, Abate, 
Baytex and Malathion. They are properly labeled and registered for mosquito con- 
trol. Their formulation and application at no time were exceeded. Abate was used 
in larval control not exceeding .046 pounds per acre, Baytex for larval control not 
exceeding .046 pounds per acre and for adult control not exceeding .06 pounds 
per acre and Malathion for adult control not exceeding 0.2 pounds per acre. The 
Project experienced no pesticide accidents the past season. All personnel of the 
Project have been duly licensed by the Massachusetts Pesticide Board. 

The Project wishes to extend it's appreciation for the time and service rendered 
by it's Board of Commissioners and acknowledges all assistance given by state 
and municipal officials, also the many courtesies extended it by the many 



117 



individuals it encountered.

REPORT OF DRAINAGE COMMITTEE 

Committee was established and appointments made in accordance with 
Article 42 of the 1975 Town Meeting. First Meeting was held on October 29, 
1975, for organizational purposes. Regular meetings are held at 8:00 p.m. on the 
3rd Wednesday of each month at the Town Hall. Article 23 of the 1975 Town 
Meeting as amended required an engineering study of the drainage situation in 
the vicinity of Atlantic Ave . and Beach Street intersection . This matter was 
referred to the Drainage Committee who awarded a contract for a preliminary 
engineering study. The result of the study will determine if a final engineering 
design of the drainage system for the area is technically and economically war- 
ranted based upon engineering consideration and the total estimated construc- 
tion costs. Other existing drainage problems were referred to the Committee by 
the Selectmen and are under study.

REPORT TO THE BOARD OF 
TREE & PARK COMMISSIONERS - 1975 

This year the Tree & Park Department lost a long time employee, 
Lawrence C. Figueiredo. He will be greatly missed. 

The nursery, started this year at Wheelwright Park, is progressing well. The 
planting program of new trees throughout the Town has been increased and will 
continue. It was the concensus of several interested citizens to replace the Elms 
on the common, which are dying at a fast rate, with Red Oaks, because of their 
resistance to weather and disease in this area. 

Special thanks to the men of this department and other departments, and to 
the Council of Garden Clubs for their cooperative assistance and contributions.

REPORT OF THE COHASSET HISTORIC COMMISSION 

The first objective of the Cohasset Historic Commission is nearing comple- 
tion. With the help of many people the inventory of the historic assets of the 
town is being compiled and will be registered with the Massachusetts Historic 
Commission. This project has been a large undertaking and we appreciate the 
volunteer help we have received. 

Each member of the Commission has taken the responsibility for a major 
project to be started and hopefully completed this coming year. The following 
goals will be our objectives for 1976. A study committee for protecting the 
Common as a Historic District; the identification on a master map to be placed 
at the harbor showing landmarks of the old boat yards and wharves; a booklet 
guide concerning the restoration of antique homes. 

Our meetings are open to the public and we encourage participation by 
interested citizens. Our primary goal is to preserve the charm and historic 
flavor of the town of Cohasset.

SOCIAL SERVICE LEAGUE 

The Social Service League has been in operation for sixty -five years and is still 
run primarily by a group of volunteers who give many hours to the League. Their 
activities include consignment shop, clinics, shuttle bus and meals on wheels. To 
all our volunteers we are indeed grateful. 

The agency is certified by Medicare and provides nursing care and physical 
therapy to all citizens of Cohasset on a part-time basis. The services include all 
types of nursing treatment, under written orders of the patients' physician; in- 
struction to the patient and family about medications, diets, home care and 
physical therapy. Fees for these services are frequently covered by Medicare, 
Medicaid and insurance. When this is not the case, adjustments are made so that 
no one is denied necessary care because of inability to pay. Receipts from the 
Consignment Shop and contributions to the League close the gap between ex- 
penses and income . 

The League also sponsors educational and screening programs. In 1975 these 
included a breast detection clinic, to which Drs. Monsees and Smith gave their 
services; a public lecture on breast cancer and its treatment by Dr. Messer; and 
a series of six HEALTHY seminars for senior citizens. 

The Family Service division of the Social Service League has continued to 
offer individual, marital and family casework counseling for any resident of 
Cohasset regardless of ability to pay. The agency employs one part-time case- 
worker and a second caseworker who conducts group therapy. Family Service is 
primarily funded by proceeds from the Consignment Shop.

The incident of Tuberculosis is not declining. The method of treatment has 
changed and people are not hospitalized as long or as often. By careful attention 
and good follow up on required tests, treatment can be started earlier and thereby 
prevent and control the spread somewhat. As recommended by the State and 
Town By-Laws Mr. O'Brien and the Board of Health have been most cooperative

with the League in seeing that all food handlers, school personnel and 
employees of nursing homes are up to date on their tests. There are 23 food 
handling establishments and 18 have cooperated. 

The Cohasset Social Service League provides the nursing service for the 
Board of Health and all residents are covered for health services. The Senior 
Health Clinics have doubled in attendance and much appreciated by those 
attending. With the advent of planned parenthood the age range of our Keep 
Well Clinic has changed — fewer children at the Well Child — more attendance 
at the Senior clinics. 

It was my pleasure to have worked this year with Mr. Kevin O'Brien and 
the Board of Health. They are most anxious to see that the health needs of 
the townspeople are met. 

Once again Mrs. Loud and myself are indebted to the Water, Police and Road 
departments for their cooperation and help. 

We wish for Cohasset continued good health. 

Elizabeth G. Staples, R.N.

REPORT OF THE HARBOR DEPARTMENT 

To the Board of Selectmen and the Citizens of the Town of Cohasset: 

Submitted herewith is the Harbor Master's annual report for the fiscal 
year 1974-1975. 

Activity on the harbor is getting greater and greater each year. It doesn't seem 
as though the gas situation or the economy has had much effect on the boating 
public. There is more demand for mooring space and more people want to go to 
larger boats. It is of the utmost importance that people adhere to the harbor 
regulations along these lines in order for us to have a more efficient and better 
utilized harbor. 

The department was fortunate to have the services of two CETA workers this 
past summer. One was on a full time basis and the other was a part time secretary. 
Both performed their duties efficiently and their work was much appreciated. 

With the help of the Explorer Scouts assigned to Night Patrol, the department 
was able to show an 18% decrease in vandalism and theft. These boys did this 
work on a volunteer basis and did a splendid job. It proves that the more man 
hours of coverage you can have, the better the results. I must say I have seen 
these boys perform in other areas in the town and they really deserve the 
encouragement and support of all concerned. They should be commended for a 
job well done. 

In the area of capital outlay, the following projects were completed: 

A new float was built for Government Island. 
The Parker Avenue ramp was resurfaced. 
A 2" pump was purchased for emergency pumping. 
A 25 HP motor was purchased for the work boat. 

It was hoped that the rebuilding of Government Island Pier would be com- 
pleted at this time, but due to the fact that there were not enough funds appro- 
priated this was not possible. The pier is in bad shape and must be attended to 
soon. There will be an article in the warrant for enough money to do this job. 

The Corps of Army Engineers was called on to make a survey of the harbor 
for maintenance dredging. It was their recommendation that it was not needed 
at this time. After reviewing the charts forwarded to the town, there is grave 
doubt in my mind as to their accuracy. I am communicating with the Corps at 
this time to have another survey made. 

Due to the vast number of complaints received by the department last year, 
all town floats and piers are to be posted for their proper use. Chapter 90B of the 
Marine and Recreational Vehicles, as well as all town bylaws and mooring regula- 
tions are to be strictly enforced. It is hoped that all boat owners will familiarize 



128 



themselves with these laws and abide by them for the safety and consideration 
of others. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry H. Ritter 
Harbor Master 



REPORT OF THE ROUTE 228 REGIONAL 
TRANSPORTATION STUDY COMMITTEE 

The Committee's membership represents the towns of Cohasset, Hingham, 
Hull, Norwell, Rockland, Scituate and Weymouth. Representatives of the Town 
of Hingham are: Joseph F. Daley, Jr., Chairman; Mrs. Frank Mangione, Secretary; 
Joseph Hegarty; Warren Knapp; William Langrill; William Phillips; David M. 
Alschuler; and Phillip Troullos. 

During 1975 the Committee worked with the Central Transportation Planning 
Staff in an attempt to identify the transportation problems in our area, and to 
find solutions to these problems. 

The Central Transportation Planning Staff was assigned to assist the Committee, 
by the Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Works. The 
Staff was established by mutual agreement of the Metropolitan Area Planning 
Council, Massachusetts Department of Public Works, Massachusetts Bay Transit 
Authority, M.B.T. A. Advisory Board and the Executive Office of Transportation. 
The C.T.P.S. is designed to act as a technical resource to state and regional agencies, 
local governments and other groups involved in transportation. 

The Central Transportation Planning Staff has been meeting with the Route 
228 Committee and various boards, committees and commissions in the seven 
towns. 

In September of 1975 the Staff submitted a draft of a report entitled: 
"Transportation Issues in the Route 228 Area". The report identifies and 
evaluates transportation related issues in the area comprising the seven towns 
represented by the Committee. Contained in the report are findings and conclu- 
sions relative to: growth and development patterns, environmental issues, travel 
patterns, bus service, Greenbush right-of-way and the commuter boat. Two sec- 
tions are yet to be completed. These are ; recreational traffic and recommendations. 

Several meetings with the C.T.P.S. will be required before the production of a 
final document is realized. 

During the months of October, November and December the Committee was 
actively involved in the commuter boat experiment conducted by the South Shore 
Chamber of Commerce, Massachusetts Port Authority, Mr. Richard Nakashian of 



129 



Bay State-Spray and Provincetown Steamship Co. and Mr. William Spence of 
Massachusetts Bay lines. The Committee sponsored a newspaper ad in the local 
papers encouraging people to use the boat and with the cooperation of the Hingharr 
School Committee provided a free bus connection with the boat for two weeks 
in December. 

Although the experiment did not meet expectations it did indicate that with 
more frequent service the commuter boat could be successful. The Committee 
will continue its work in this area. 

The concern, cooperation and efforts of everyone involved in the experiment 
is deeply appreciated. We are especially grateful to those people who used the 
boat for transportation. Mr. Nakashian and Mr. Spence are to be highly com- 
mended for their time and effort and personal financial risk in making the ex- 
periment possible. 

The Committee is divided into three sub-committees: Road, Mrs. Katherine 
E. Cranton of Norwell and Mr. Joseph F. Daley, Jr. of Hingham, Co-Chairmen; 
Public Transportation, Mr. Warren Knapp of Hingham, Chairman and Existing 
Route 228, Mrs. Susan Mangione of Hingham, Chairwoman. 

The Committee in 1973 requested each town to contribute $500.00 to defray 
expenses. To date the towns of Rockland, Weymouth and Cohasset have not 
responded. Mr. Thomas Izbicki of Weymouth is the Committee's Treasurer. 

The Committee opposed House Bill 1439 which proposed the construction of 
a road from Route 3 to the towns of Scituate and Cohasset. In opposing this 
Bill the committee stated that, before any concrete proposals are made, the 
investigatory study being conducted by the Central Transportation Planning 
Staff should be completed. 

On May 28, 1975 the Chairman, Mr. Joseph F. Daley, Jr., testified at a hearing 
on the proposed South Quincy M.B.T.A. station. A copy of the Committee's vote 
of November 1974, supporting a station in the vicinity of Routes 128 and 3, was 
submitted. 



Meeting dates of the Committee will be published in the newspapers. The 
meetings are open and participation by all residents of the towns is encouraged. 
All individuals, civic groups, organizations and Town Officials are urged to 
present their comments, suggestions and recommendations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph F. Daley, Jr., 
Chairman

REPORT OF THE COHASSET DRUG EDUCATION COMMITTEE 

(C.D.E.C.) 

The Cohasset Drug Education Committee was established in 1970 as a 
citizen-initiated response to the crisis of drug abuse in our community. While 
there have been numerous changes in the nature of the programs supported by 
the committee, all have been related in some way to alleviating the human 
suffering resulting from drug abuse. A volunteer drop in center was gradually 
turned into The City, which since 1973 has been professionally staffed, and 
has provided counseling and guidance for Cohasset's young people . As the 
years have passed, the needs for counseling and socialization have changed 
considerably; fewer of the clients now have specific drug abuse problems 
(though alcohol abuse has created a new set of problems) and more are con- 
cerned with family relationships, peer group acceptance, identity, career plan- 
ning, and the use of leisure time. Mel Lewis, as Director of the program, has 
done an outstanding job in working toward cooperation of The City's program 
with school personnel and guidance programs. The Drug Education Committee 
fully supports the idea of shared programs and full cooperation among all town 
agencies dealing with youth, and has participated during the past year in discus- 
sions with the Recreation Commission and other interested public and volunteer 
agencies, with the hope of providing Cohasset's young people with the finest 
possible program of leisure time use. 

The community's support of the drug education program illustrates the good 
things which can be achieved through cooperation of local efforts and resources 
with state programs. The past year one state grant (from the Division of Drug 
Rehabilitation of the Department of Mental Health) provided for the employ- 
ment of an Outreach Worker, John Henderson. A federal grant (channelled 
through the state) provided for the youth agriculture program Operation Green- 
power which operated last summer. In addition, private fundraising by the 
C.D.E.C. has meant that a program costing more than $25,000 has been pro- 
vided at a cost of less than $15,000 to the town. 

The Cohasset Drug Education Committee gratefully commends all of those 
who have provided support of its diverse programs and projects. The town's (and 
the nation's) best investment in the future lies in the sound development of its 
young people; the cooperative effort represented by C.D.E.C.'s program shows 
what can be done to meet even the most awesome problems when people who 
care work together. On behalf of persons served by our programs, thank you.

1975 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS 

This year was a rather quiet one for the Board in that no significant progress 
was made in the crystallization of the Town's sewerage program. A plan for ex- 
panding the sewer system was presented to the Board by its consulting engineers 
as was a study of the Harbor to determine the impact of additional discharge of 
heated wastewater on water quality. These two reports were coupled in a submit- 
tal to the State Division of Water Pollution Control for their review and approval. 
Preliminary approval of this submittal was received in December, 1975. 

Such approval, however, does not indicate any immediate construction pro- 
gram for the community. The format for such activity essentially rests in the 
Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendment of 1972, referred to as Public 
Law 92-500. This law has increased the complexity of the traditional approach 
to local solutions for wastewater treatment. Adherence to this law and its subse- 
quent evolution of rules and regulations has resulted in a rather lethargic pace of 
program implementation. In essence a community dying for Federal and State 
financial assistance in construction must comply with various requirements in the 
development of a municipal wastewater treatment program. Fundamentally, a 
town must proceed through three steps before actual construction is undertaken: 

Step I 

The preparation of a plan of action involving alternates, and related 
considerations such as environmental assessment of treatment facility 
location, adequacy of any existing sewer system, cost effectiveness of 
project, and local development of a satisfactory sewer use ordinance. 

Step II 

The development of detailed plans and specifications for the waste- 
water treatment facility, sewer system, and appurtenant structures. 

Step III 

The undertaking of a construction program to implement Step II. 

The Board of Sewer Commissioners have partially waded through Step I, with 
the environmental assessment and determination of the adequacy of the existing 
sewer system. Considerable time and effort remain to be expended before the 
program is in a finalized state for presentation to the Town for its approval. 

The Board of Sewer Commissioners look forward to continued support in its 
attempt to develop a program suitable for meeting the Town's needs, which have 
long been outstanding. 

Respectfully submitted, 

David B. Buckley, Chairman 
Rocco F. Laugelle, Clerk

SCHOOL COMMITTEE 
ANNUAL REPORT - 1975 

This past year has been a stimulating one of both turmoil and change. In 
addition to our bi-monthly meetings, the Committee met numerous nights a 
week, plus weekends, since the majority vote in November, 1974, was not to 
rehire James Gray, Superintendent of Schools. We were busy screening over 200 
applications and conducting personal interviews and visiting the towns and school 
systems of the top candidates. 

1975 

January: The Urban Discovery Project had been initiated in Cohasset under 
Chapter 636 to develop comprehensive part-time educational programs between 
suburb and city. 

The community was saddened by the sudden death of Ed Sandberg, Head 
Custodian of the Deer Hill School on January 29, 1975. 

February: We initiated our search for a new Superintendent. Qualifications and 
personal qualities were stipulated. It was voted that the School Committee be 
solely responsible for screening and selecting the Superintendent. 

March: In an ongoing administrative reorganization, the Committee abolished 
the position of John Boynton, Dean of Faculty, at the Junior High and also did 
not rehire Donald Ford, Principal of the Deer Hill School. 

Alice Daunt retired after many years of outstanding service to the school. 

April: The proposal of move-up was accepted with changes and modifications 
made by the Committee. 

May: Dr. John F. Maloney was selected by the Committee to fill the position of 
Superintendent of Cohasset Schools. Dr. Maloney was Superintendent of Schools 
in Oxford, Massachusetts for the past six years. He is a graduate of Boston College 
where he received a Bachelor of Science degree; a Masters degree in Education 
from Bridgewater State Teachers College; a sixth year diploma in Education from 
the University of Connecticut. He received his doctorate in Educational Admin- 
istration from Nova University in Florida. 

The 1975-1976 school budget of $2,999,289, was accepted. 

The meeting of May 12th began the reorganization of the School Committee, 
welcoming in two new members, Anne Baird and Frank England. 

The arbitrator's ruling returned Richard Streeter to the school system as Principal 
of the High School. The decision of the previous board was not to appeal. 

June: A communication was received from the Labor Relations Commission 
testifying to the election held by the Department of Labor Relations. The cafe- 
teria employees voted negatively and the secretaries voted affirmatively to join 
the C.T.A. (Cohasset Teachers' Association). 

133 



July: Dr. John Maloney came aboard officially as our new Superintendent. 

The METCO contract for 1975-1976 school year was approved. 

The Committee approved the Superior Court final judgment and authorized the 
payment of $25,000.00 to Richard Streeter. 

August: Through a series of summer workshops, definitive goals and objectives 
were established for the school year by the Committee and Superintendent, 
namely: 

1 . Communications 

2. Attitudes 

3. Discipline 

4. Curriculum 

In considering the release day proposal, the Committee's decision was to reduce 
the number of release days from 35 in 1974-1975 to 10 in 1975-1976 school 
year. 

September: School opened with 1917 children in grades K-12. 

Kenneth Ekberg was selected as Principal of the Deer Hill School and reported 
for work on October 13. 

October: We accepted the resignation of Phillip Jutras, Curriculum Coordinator. 

November: Betty Enders, Attendance Clerk at the High School, retired after 
many years. 

A reception was held for the past six School Committee Members and each was 
presented with a plaque for his dedicated service to the Community. 

The Committee was presented with statistics involving projected enrollment 
figures for the 1976-1977 school year. The largest class is the sixth grade with 
182 pupils. In September of 1976, this class will move into the Junior High 
and with the projected kindergarten enrollment of 100, this means that the 
enrollment from K-6 will decrease by approximately 82 students. These figures 
indicate that some grade reorganization will take place. 

Teacher negotiations were carried on all through the past year and a contract 
was not signed until November. 

December: Received first draft of preliminary 1976-1977 school year budget. 

I should like to express the Committee's gratefulness to our Superintendent, 
Dr. John Maloney. Within six short months, he has established harmonious 
personal relationships with the students, faculty and parents in bringing this 
town closer together. 



134 



I should also like to thank the Communication Councils for their fine pro- 
grams and assistance at open houses and receptions, thereby helping to keep 
communications open.

SUPERINTENDENTS ANNUAL REPORT - 1975 

It is with pleasure that I submit my first annual report as superintendent of 
schools in Cohasset. 

Over the past five or six years, the Cohasset Schools have experienced a great 
deal of emotional turmoil. Accordingly, as a new superintendent, employed 
July 1 , 1975, 1 have adopted the theme "Let's put it together." Because this 
beautiful community contains an abundance of intelligent people, we can trans- 
form this town and this school system into anything we desire. There's no 
question the potential for one of the finest school systems in the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts exists here in Cohasset. Rather than broadcast our weaknesses, 
better we, as a community and a school department, join together and extol our 
strengths while at the same time improve those areas which we adjudge as need- 
ing improvement. To recognize a problem area is simple; to find a workable 
solution is often difficult and frustrating at best. Let us all dedicate ourselves 
to becoming supportive boosters of our community and our schools. 

Any organization that has experienced difficult times needs to establish 
direction and priorities. Fortunately, the School Committee recognized this 
need and after a series of summer workshops established four goals for the 1975- 
1976 school year. The goals are as follows: improvement of communications, 
improvement of curriculum, improvement of the overall discipline and attendance 
in the school system, and, lastly, an upgrading of the attitude and morale of the 
student body and staff. Happily, I can report that we have made much progress 
in the accomplishment of these goals. You will note that several of them must 
be constantly under review and can never be considered as finally fulfilled. 

Twelve of our most notable accomplishments include: 

1 . Reorganized the administrative structure of the school department 
to include a director of curriculum and instruction. 

2. Hired a building principal for the Deer Hill School. 

3. Finalized a contract with the Cohasset Teachers' Association after 
a year's negotiations. 

4. Completed policy guidelines for school nurses, aides, technicians and 
transportation personnel. 

5. Completed contract negotiations for two years with cafeteria personnel. 

6. Submitted several educational projects for full funding by the federal 
government, e.g. career education, audio-visual and media, elementary 
tutoring program. 

7. Continued participation in the METCO project and expended METCO 
funds for various non-budgeted school needs. 



136 



8. Conducted curriculum review and in-service training programs for staff 
in several academic disciplines, e.g. elementary reading, special education, 
legal rights of teachers and students. 

9. Completed preliminary budget for the 1976-1977 school year. 

10. Established regular meetings with communication councils from 
individual schools. 

1 1 . Joined a special needs collaborative, Chapter 766, with Hingham, Hull, 
Scituate, Weymouth, Quincy and Braintree. 

12. Completed extensive maintenance and renovation work in all our 
school buildings. 

Although much has been accomplished, v/e plan to spend a considerable 
amount of time working in the area of program and curriculum improvement 
next year. We are anxious to provide the children of Cohasset a high quality 
education program, together with cost-effective management. This task will not 
be easy, since we all know that inflation has eroded the purchasing power of the 
school department's budget as well as the homeowners'. 

My family and I wish to express our appreciation to the members of the 
community, School Committee, Cohasset Teachers' Association, non-teaching 
personnel, members of the school communication councils and municipal em- 
ployees for the warm reception and courtesies you have shown us. You certainly 
have helped to make our transition into the Cohasset community an enjoyable 
experience. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John F. Maloney, Ed.D. 
Superintendent of Schools

1975 REPORT OF COHASSET'S MEMBER OF THE 
SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMITTEE 

Cohasset's present enrollment of 5 students in the regular program is the 
lowest in several years. Fortunately, Cohasset's new Superintendent, Dr. John 
F. Maloney, and the Cohasset School Committee have shown increasing interest 
in occupational education and particularly in South Shore Vocational Technical 
High School. For the first time in many years, this member and Superintendent- 
Director, Fred Teed, were invited to a Cohasset School Committee meeting in 
October. The Cohasset Committee inquired of admittance procedures, courses 
available, future expansion, areas of cooperation, and possible means of expand- 
ing Cohasset's enrollment. 

In contrast, enrollment from other member towns is as follows: 
Norwell 48, Hanover 59, Abington 75, Scituate 76, Rockland 98 for a total of 
361 including 6 girls. It should be noted, however, that Cohasset has a stronger 
representation in the Alternative Program. Students attend their own school for 
morning sessions and are transported to Vo-Tech 4 days per week for vocational 
training from 2:30 to 4:30 P.M. Next year courses will be available in Auto Re- 
pair, Auto Body, Combination Welding, Metal Fabrication, Carpentry, and 
Machine Operator. 

Our Assistant Director, Mr. Warren Anderson, was given additional duties to 
provide consultation with member towns in the matters of occupational educa- 
tion and cases involving Chapter 766 Special Needs. Mr. Leonard Cody was ad- 
vanced to Director of Guidance and takes up Mr. Anderson's job placement 
duties while Russell DeCoste was transferred from Social Studies to Guidance 
Counselor and interviewing of applicants. 

Negotiations with the teachers began in early February and reached an im- 
passe in late March. No meetings were held until mid- August when with the aid 
of State Mediator, Brendon Dalton, a two year agreement was reached. Salaries 
increased 8% for this year and 6% effective Sept. 1, 1976. The basic schedule 
now in effect is as follows:

10,084 
16,465 


10,426 
16,807 



The moratorium on State aid for new school buildings has forced the Com- 
mittee to plan in phases toward its goal to double the enrollment. Phase I, a 
"mini" addition for the present enrollment, would relieve overcrowding and 
enable compliance with the minimum requirements of Chapter 622 (equal oppor- 
tunity law) and Chapter 766 (special education law). This addition would pro- 
vide 4 teaching stations, an exercise room, and shower and locker rooms for girls. 

In spite of a high rate of unemployment, all of the 1975 graduates desiring 
work were placed in jobs which involved their training.

1975 REPORT OF SCHOOL FACILITIES COMMITTEE 

Under Article 33, the Annual Town Meeting voted to continue this committee, 
which was established under Article 42 of the 1960 Annual Meeting. The vote 
clarified the areas to be considered by the Committee, specified its relationship 
with the School Committee and fixed set terms of appointment for present and 
future members (See actual vote in Town Clerk's Report). 

In June the Committee voted to terminate planning for a new school (in 
abeyance since February 1973) and voted to cancel the contract with the archi- 
tect, Earl R. Flansburgh and Associates of Cambridge. The indeflniteness of ex- 
panding the sewer system, a contracting elementary age population, and adverse 
economic conditions were the principle reasons for abolishing this project. The 
Committee, never the less, feels the original need still exists for improved elemen- 
tary facilities to permit a higher quality of education. 

As the unexpended balance of funds for preliminary plans were no longer 
needed, the Selectmen were instructed to close out the two accounts, a total of 
$16,732.80. The architect was paid $10,691.56. The Committee regrets there is 
no tangible return. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sumner Smith, Jr. 
Chairman

RECREATION COMMISSION 
YEARLY REPORT 

Last summer the Cohasset Recreation Commission ran a most successful pro- 
gram with a staff of eight paid for by the town and four members of the-youth 
corps. 

The playground program was very successful. We had the use of the pool at 
the Cohasset Swim Center for one hour a day three days a week. The children 
attended all eight presentations of the children's shows at the South Shore 
Music Circus. Three trips were taken, one to the Franklin Park Zoo, one to 
King's Castleland and one to the Science Museum. The tennis and basketball 
programs went very well. 

Ice skating at Lily Pond, Cushing Road and Beechwood Street ponds was 
enjoyed by many children and grown-ups.

invaluable assistance.

REPORT OF THE SHELLFISH WARDEN 



I submit herewith a report of my stewardship as Shellfish Warden for the 
year 1975. 

The Cohasset clam flats have been closed since 1971, principally because of 
over-harvesting by both commercial and home diggers. 

While there may have been some question of pollution in the past, particu- 
larly in the Little Harbor area, most of the problems have been corrected and 
this seems no longer an important factor. 

The fact is, however, that in spite of a ban on digging for the last five years, 
the clam population has not increased. The small budget of this department 
will not permit a major re-seeding effort. We have, however, been fortunate in 
enlisting the financial assistance of the Conservation Commission in this pro- 
gram. The Town is particularly indebted to Richard Burton, a marine biologist, 
associated with Project Dominion of Bridgewater, Mass. who has given gener- 
ously of his time and talent in our re-seeding effort. At this time it is not 
possible to evaluate the results of his work, but we are hopeful that it will 
produce results and that in time the residents of Cohasset may once again 
enjoy the taking of shellfish from local areas for home consumption. 

The interest and cooperation of the Board of Selectmen in this effort is 
very much appreciated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rocco Rosano 
Shellfish Warden

REPORT OF THE BICENTENNIAL COMMISSION 

In 1973 the Board of Selectmen appointed a Bicentennial Chairman to 
serve as liaison with the State Bicentennial Commission, to keep abreast of 
Bicentennial plans as they were being developed at the State and local levels, 
and to make recommendations to the Selectmen. 

In January 1974 the Chairman attended a two day conference at University 
of Massachusetts, Amherst. The conference consisted mainly of a series of 
seminars presented by members of the State Commission staff and outside ex- 
perts. These seminars covered a wide range of subjects and outlined countless 
projects which communities might undertake in the name of the Bicentennial. 
Among the subjects were: preservation and restoration (of old records and 
documents, buildings , historic sites, cemeteries); conservation and recreation 
projects; art and cultural programs; and also the public health, safety, and 
traffic problems which might arise as a result of an expected tourist influx to 
Massachusetts in 1975 and 1976. 

On January 23, 1974 the Chairman met with the Selectmen to present 
recommendations which included the appointment of a seven member Bicen- 
tennial Commission with specific representation from the Conservation and 
Recreation Commissions, the School Committee, and the Cohasset Historical 
Society. It was also recommended that an Historical Commission be established 
by the Town through an article in the Town Meeting. 

Following its appointment and organization the new Commission held a 
series of informal discussions. A review of all of the events of the town's 200th 
birthday celebration of 1970 was made to see if any might be repeated. It was 
determined that significant involvement of the town's youth was highly desir- 
able , and that private funding of Bicentennial programs was probably going 
to be needed. 

Subsequently the Cohasset Historical Society presented a proposal for the 
acquisition and restoration of the Caleb Lothrop House at 17 Summer Street 
as a center for historical activities in the community, to include a museum, 
library, archive, and research facility for local history students. Feeling that 
this provided a program in which a large number of citizens could become in- 
volved, and that it would create a permanent and much needed historical 
facility the Commission sanctioned this project as a major Bicentennial effort. 

A meeting was held with the Cohasset Village and Harbor Association for 
an exchange of ideas and this group has since published a walking tour map 
of the area for use by visitors. 

Meanwhile, Mr. Francis Hagerty presented an idea for teaching young people 
some of the old time crafts and having them demonstrate these skills in an 
exhibition to be held during the Art Festival in the summer of 1976. This pro- 
gram was accepted with enthusiasm by the Commission and Mr. Hagerty was 
made an associate member in order to direct the project. This has since devel- 



197 



oped into a full scale school study program in which students of the Cohasset 
Schools from elementary through high school are taking an in-depth look at 
people who lived in our community in the latter half of the 18th century. It 
will culminate in a series of displays and demonstrations on Cohasset Common 
from June 30 through July 5, 1976. The community is much indebted to Mr. 
Hagerty for this concept and for the countless hours of his time which have 
been devoted to it. 

In the Fall of 1975 a re-enactment of the town's first Town Meeting in 1770 
was staged in the First Parish Meeting House under joint sponsorship of the 
First Parish and the Historical Society. This was a repeat of a play written by 
Mrs. Helen Ketcham for the 1970 town celebration. 

Additional programs under consideration are a repeat of the Blessing of the 
Fleet ceremony which was performed for the first time in 1970, and also an 
ecumenical church service including a program of special music. 

The Community Garden Club is planning a Bicentennial House Tour in the 
early Spring of 1976. 

The Commission is currently preparing an application for Federal recognition 
under the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration (ARBA) since 
projects now underway satisfy the criteria for this program. 

Further ideas to make Cohasset's participation in this celebration more 
memorable and meaningful are ernestly solicited, and individuals or organized 
groups who have suggestions should contact any member of the Commission.
